Rhabdomyolysis, a Recent Concern in Safety during Training

first_img Among the treatment methods, the most common and simple is vigorous hydration. Rhabdomyolysis is a syndrome characterized by muscle necrosis that leads to the release of contents from the cells into the bloodstream; it is a scary name when heard for the first time, causing different reactions after the meaning is explained. The matter has been a topic of research by professionals involved in sports medicine, such as physical training instructors and combat trainers from major military training centers around the world. By Dialogo June 26, 2013 Many variables may elevate the risks of accidents due to high temperatures, especially the following: • Individual over 40 years of age; • History of past accidents caused by high temperatures; • Skin problems that may interfere with sweating functions, such as burns or rashes; • Consumption of alcohol less than 24 hours prior to the activity; • Consumption of food supplements without medical guidance; • Use of drugs and/or supplements (allergy or cold medications, or pills containing ephedra, etc.); • Obesity or overweight; • Health problems such as diarrhea, virus, vomit, nausea; • Poor physical condition; • Exposure to two or three days of heat, intense physical activity, sleep deprivation, lack of water or rest; • Non-acclimation to heat, especially in the Amazon region (less than 10 or 14 days of aerial activity). My name is Renata, and I’m writing a paper for an undergraduate course of mine on rhabdomyolysis in the military. If someone could help me with articles, I’d appreciate it. Col. Montenegro’s test is very enlightening. It must be a constant worry during the classes of the security forces’ various courses and internships. Congratulations, commander! The following are among the main clinical signs and symptoms: • Muscle pain (variable intensity); • Dark urine (myoglobinuria); • Muscle enzymes (CK) elevation; • Muscle edema (swelling); • Muscle weakness (advanced cases); • Mental confusion (ARF) *Retired Colonel Fernando Montenegro – Brazilian Army Special Forces –the head of the Education Department of the Brazilian Jungle Warfare Training Center (CIGS), coordinator/instructor of the Command Actions courses and the Operations and Survival Actions courses in the Brazilian dry forest – Caatinga (COSAC). Rhabdomyolysis caused a significant percentage of Soldiers’ deaths, hospitalizations, or cases in which they had to leave their training drills during combat in the military in the last 10 years. It is known that combat training military activities require physical fitness and periodic training. During this self-improvement process, which includes obstacles and intense exercise, it is essential that individuals remain hydrated and any intake of supplements must be followed by qualified professionals (doctors or nutritionists), in addition, of course, to alcohol or drugs being prohibited. Military trainings, especially combat classes conducted in tropical countries, require special attention to temperature, hydration opportunities for students and, during more critical outdoor activities, the elaboration of an efficient evacuation plan via a mobile motorized or airborne ICU. The simple explanation for non-experts is that it is a syndrome characterized by muscle cell rupture that may occur during strenuous physical activity. When the person is either dehydrated or deprived from drinking water in extreme heat, their kidneys may stop working, leading to death. Members of the military are the more commonly affected population by Rhabdomyolysis. Therefore, it is important that all trainers are properly familiarized with the issue and that training conditions are planned based on scientific methods and that there are prearranged resources to identify and control such problems in a timely manner. On the other hand, students must be aware of the risks mentioned above to mitigate the possibility of incidences of the syndrome. Incidents that lead to trauma may also cause Rhabdomyolysis, such as: crushing; multiple fracture or long-term immobilization. last_img read more

Local Girl and Boy Scouts create STEM projects for Kopernik Science Park

first_imgSonnen, her younger sister’s troop, and Boy Scout Anthony Dudinyak created different projects linking scientific aspects to having fun at the Kopernik Science Park. “I thought about how we should be going to the moon again soon,” Dudinyak said. “and I wanted to find a way I could give the community more information on the moon.” “I grew up kind of at Korpernik,” Sonnen said. “I spent all my summers here either interning or attending the camps.” VESTAL (WBNG) — For her Girl Scout Gold Award project, Katelyn Sonnen wanted to give back to a place that she says means so much to her. “I love spreading the love for science. Without having influences, I would never have gotten to where I am today,” Sonnen said. “Educators, parents, and kids if they have phones can scan QR codes and find fun activities or games they could play and teach them a little behind the science of what they’re doing,” Sonnen said. center_img For his Eagle Scout project Dudinyak created signs with the phases of the moon, a project he says was inspired by the SpaceX launch as it was getting closer. After seeing Sonnen create the STEM signs, her younger sister, Mary, and her troop were inspired to build a little library filled with books, something Katelyn says she was honored to hear. Sonnen spent 100 hours creating interactive STEM signs for each playground equipment. Sonnen says she’s interested in the STEM field and wanted to find a way to help parkgoers learn about the science behind the equipment they are using.last_img read more

Democrats in Congress showed their true colors

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionNow we all finally know what the elected Democratic officials in Washington stand for — absolutely nothing. The mention of supporting our vets, supporting those in the military now, police and fireman putting their lives on the line for them, lowering drug costs, making our nation more safe for everyone and putting a end to the illegal gangs that are killing innocent Americans keeps our elected Democrats in their seats with sour looks on their faces. I know for sure that the average Democrat does not feel this way. They all want to feel safe, they do care about our vets and those putting their lives on the line for us every day, including police, fire and border patrol. But if you watched the State of the Union address on Jan. 30, all you saw were angry, hate-filled supposed representatives of our fellow Americans. I guess that this is their plan, to stand for nothing and hope the lack of any plan will not be noticed thanks to the help of the very distorted left-wing media. I truly feel sorry for these elected officials because they have no vision, no policy and no respect for the average American. They are the true example of hatred, division and stupidity for everyone to see that night. Thanks for letting us see your true colors.Denise CrisciScotiaMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsSchenectady teens accused of Scotia auto theft, chase; Ended in Clifton Park crash, Saratoga Sheriff…EDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesEDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationlast_img read more

Turkey-Russia tensions soar after deadly Syria strike

first_imgHumanitarian crisis At emergency talks on Friday, Russian Ambassador to the UN Vassily Nebenzia told the Security Council that Moscow was “ready to de-escalate with anyone who wants to” in Idlib.The UN has repeatedly warned that the fighting in Idlib could potentially create the most serious humanitarian crisis since the start of the Syrian conflict in 2011.UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said the world body was planning to send a humanitarian mission there.Diplomats said the mission to Idlib could start next week and include representatives of major UN agencies.”The most pressing need is an immediate ceasefire before the situation gets entirely out of control,” Guterres told reporters.But Russian vetoes, often backed by China, have chronically crippled UN action.Turkey again called on the international community to establish a no-fly zone over Idlib, where Islamist fighters backed by Ankara pose the biggest obstacle to Assad seizing back control over all of Syria.On Thursday, jihadists and Turkish-backed rebels had re-entered Saraqeb, a key Idlib crossroads town they had lost earlier in February — reversing one of the main gains of the government’s devastating offensive. Thirty-three Turkish troops were killed late Thursday in the air strike in the northwestern province of Idlib, in the biggest single loss of life by the Turkish military in years.Russian President Vladimir Putin and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan spoke by telephone and looked to scale down tensions, with the Kremlin saying the two expressed “serious concern” about the situation.”There is always room for dialogue,” Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said.He said the two leaders spoke of “the necessity to do everything” to implement a 2018 ceasefire that has since collapsed between the two countries in Idlib. Topics : The leaders of Russia and Turkey held crisis talks Friday after 33 Turkish soldiers died in an air strike in Syria, as Ankara ramped up pressure on Europe by threatening to flood in migrants.The United States and United Nations urged an end to the Russian-backed Syrian offensive against rebel holdouts, but Turkey appeared intent on easing tensions with Moscow by pinning the blame squarely on President Bashar al-Assad’s regime.The flare-up raised fresh concerns for civilians caught up in the escalation of the horrific eight-year civil war, with the UN saying nearly a million people — half of them children — have been displaced in the bitter cold by the fighting since December. Gates open to migrantsErdogan’s communications director Fahrettin Altun accused Assad on Twitter of “conducting ethnic cleansing” to drive millions out of Idlib, but said Turkey does not have the resources to accept more refugees.Turkey has already taken in around four million Syrians and is wary of more arrivals in the face of growing popular discontent about their presence.In a move seen as putting pressure on the West, Turkey threatened to go back on a deal with the EU and open the way for refugees to go into Europe.”We will no longer keep the doors closed for refugees who want to go to Europe,” a Turkish official told AFP.In response, both Bulgaria and Greece said they were tightening border security as groups of migrants moved westwards across Turkey.Greek border guards blocked hundreds of migrants from entering the country at the Kastanies border crossing in the northeast of the country as army trucks loaded with barbed wire raced past.The EU called on Ankara to uphold its side of the 2016 migrant pact, in which the Europeans offered six billion euros in exchange for Turkey stemming the flow of migrants who had triggered a major backlash in the country. Erdogan may travel next week to Moscow for talks, Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov said. Before the killing of troops, Erdogan spoke of a meeting with Putin on March 5 but said it would also include the leaders of France and Germany. US condemnationUS President Donald Trump condemned the attack on Turkish troops in a call with Erdogan and again urged Russia and Syria to halt the Idlib operation, the White House said.Secretary of State Mike Pompeo called the attack “despicable and brazen” and said the US was looking at ways to support Turkey, a NATO ally that has recently drifted from the West.A senior US official, while acknowledging that Turkey had blamed the Assad regime for the strike, said that Russia closely planned all operations with Syria.”Russia is responsible for this offensive — period,” the official said in Washington on condition of anonymity.The idea of the “pathetic, keelhauled, draftee Assad military forces fighting the Turks and some of the opposition forces… is laughable,” he said.Turkey said it retaliated by hitting more than 200 regime targets in drone and artillery bombardments.The reprisals killed 45 Syrian soldiers in Idlib, according to a monitor, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. There was no confirmation from the Syrian government.Rebel and Turkish fire also killed 10 fighters from Hezbollah, the Lebanese Shiite group backed by Iran that is supporting Assad, the Observatory said, adding that Russian strikes killed seven civilians.Adding to the tensions, Moscow said two of its warships were transiting through the Bosphorus Strait in Istanbul in plain sight of the city.last_img read more

Arsenal striker cheated on girlfriend with nightclub worker

first_img He even texted Funda while on holiday with his girlfriend of five years Manon MogaveroCredit: The Mega Agency “It’s an open secret about me and Alex. Everyone treats us like a couple. I was naive but I really did believe we had a future together.” Funda’s pal told how the £180,000-a-week star sent messages urging his lover to wear suspenders for romps. He also asked her if she wanted to smoke shisha pipes or inhale nitrous oxide with him. He and Funda met in late 2018, a year after his £52million move from Lyon. They hooked up while Lacazette was on a night out at the Libertine nightclub in Soho, London. Funda’s pal said that once she got over Lacazette’s confession she continued to see him — hoping he would eventually commit to her. She even dropped him off for a flight for pre-season training in America and drove Alex’s car. Lacazette picked her up in his £250,000 Ferrari whenever they met for dates or went to his home in Hampstead, North London. Funda claims she didn’t know the Arsenal ace was in a relationship and is surprised he wasn’t caught out, given his status as a Premier League star Read Also: Here’s why Arsenal opted to offload Alex Iwobi Funda’s pal said they only went there occasionally as he feared his girlfriend could turn up unannounced. Lacazette is still believed to be with beauty therapist Manon, who moved to London at the same time as him. They were snapped on holiday in Sardinia in June. He follows her on Instagram and she is a Facebook pal of his brother Gerome. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Arsenal ace Alexandre Lacazette cheated on his long-term love with a stunning nightclub worker. The striker, 28, enjoyed dates with Funda Gedik at £1,500-a-night hotels and introduced her to his family and teammates. Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette cheated on his long-term partner with nightclub worker Funda Gedik He even texted her while on holiday with his partner of five years, Manon Mogavero, last summer. But Funda, 23, was left devastated when he confessed after three months of dating that he was not single. She carried on seeing him hoping he would commit — but now says she feels “completely betrayed”. Funda, 23, told a pal: “Alex went out of his way to persuade me to go out with him. He promised me the world and his devotion. “It’s no surprise I fell so hard for him. He treated me like a princess. “We regularly stayed at luxury hotels in London like The Sanderson. But then he casually confessed that he had a long-term girlfriend. “I was shocked. I believed he was single. I was furious and had to hear him tell me about the girl he had been dating for five years and had moved to London with him. “Alex managed to talk me round and promised there would be a future for us. He made an effort to see me almost every day. “He messaged all the time — even when he was in Sardinia on holiday during last summer. “We went out together all the time, especially in Mayfair. Alex was very affectionate and never seemed to care who saw us together. “It’s amazing we were not spotted before as he is a top Premier League star. But he has made no effort to leave his girlfriend.

Golden Oldies

first_imgEvery once in a while I like to play my old records that go back to the 1950’s. Oh, what a kinder, slower time those 50’s were. Baseball was played every day of the week except for Monday, and every big day–like Memorial Day–you could count on a doubleheader. Players stayed with their teams for long periods of time and the majority stayed for a whole career. Every Sunday you could find a local team playing or you could easily get up a game somewhere if you just looked for a few minutes. Kids played football in the fall, basketball in the winter, and track or baseball in the spring. Now almost every sport plays 12 months a year and each sport has to fight for their time. Kids traded baseball cards not packets of drugs, and they had to watch TV if they wanted to do something electronic. You could watch college football on TV, but not for 12 consecutive hours on several outlets. A trip to Crosley Field was a family outing that didn’t require a couple of hundred dollar bills to pay for the tickets and buy some refreshments. Nobody heard of free agency and the Yankees won because they drafted well and not because they bought all the players from the Royals. Oh, for the good old days of sports! You gathered around one TV to catch a big game, not go to a sports bar and see it on a dozen or so TVs. And best of all, games did not start at 4:10 for the sake of TV.last_img read more

In good hands with Bielema

first_imgBRYAN FAUST/Herald photoSitting at a banquet at a table with other writers during the week leading up to the Capital One Bowl, we were joined by a surprise guest.Defensive coordinator and future University of Wisconsin head coach Bret Bielema pulled up a chair and visited with us — well, mostly just one of us — for a few minutes. Even though I wasn’t the one he was interested in talking with, I still felt like I was witnessing something special.Sitting there, I just couldn’t picture Barry Alvarez grabbing a seat at a table full of members of the media, especially with hundreds of boosters at dozens of tables surrounding us.At the same time, this gesture didn’t surprise me. For one, he was getting chummy with one of the beat writers from one of the three major papers in the state of Wisconsin — a pretty smart move.But it also failed to catch me off guard, because talking to him in the past two seasons, I’ve realized that, beyond being a good coach, Bielema is also really a good guy. One that, if it weren’t for UW hockey captain Adam Burish, would be at the top of my list of people to listen to as far as interviews are concerned.Let’s just say that after meeting and interviewing him for the first time two years ago, I already knew he was going to be a head coach.I wasn’t sure it would be here at Wisconsin, but I thought it should be. I even had a column ready to run that would have told the athletic director in Alvarez to make sure he had this guy locked up in the UW program.Of course, after a 9-3 season that very few saw coming, it seemed like it would be inappropriate for me to call out Alvarez, ask him to step down and tell him to make Bielema the head coach right then and there.Then again, little did I know that that was exactly what would happen just a few months down the road when Alvarez announced over the summer that the 2005 season would be his last, and Bielema would assume the throne.Some of you might not believe that whole story, but I promise you it’s true and I don’t regret not running it, because I still think I would have looked insane.Instead, it is Alvarez who looks like a genius, and granted, the move shows he is very smart.Though Bielema has already been on the recruiting trail and has also been putting together his assistant coaching staff, he officially claims the title as head football coach today, and let’s just say the program is in good stands.There is some hard and fast evidence.First off, his defensive unit was criticized all year long for its efforts, yet it passed its test against a solid Auburn team Jan. 2. But that’s just the start.Today, along with Bielema’s first official day on the job, is official signing day. Expected to be included on Wisconsin’s list are a pair of four-star players — according to Scout.com — 12th-ranked wide receiver Lance Kendricks and 22nd-ranked offensive lineman Jake Bscherer.The class should also include eight three-star prospects according to the same website.No, this is not an out-of-this-world class — Scout has it listed as the 35th best in the country — it is a solid start to Bielema’s career. And considering the recruiting resumes of he and his assistants, this is just the beginning.The latest of those assistant coaching additions is Bob Palcic. In a move announced Tuesday, Bielema hired Palcic to take over as offensive line coach, replacing Jim Hueber, who moved on to the Minnesota Vikings.Palcic joins Mike Hankwitz as one of the two newest veteran assistants, as Bielema has put together an outstanding combination of young up-and-comers and veterans with solid resumes.Along with keeping Henry Mason and Paul Chryst on board, the new head coach has hired Dave Doeren and Kerry Cooks, two upstart coaches — much like himself. The only negative to these coaches is that they are going places, and who knows how long they will be at Wisconsin?Nonetheless, though it is just Bielema’s first real day on the job, he has already made a variety of decisions — all of which will have a positive impact on the program.But there are, of course, things that Bielema will need to work on. There always are with head coaches who take their first jobs.He could start by issuing an official wave goodbye to running back Booker Stanley — a boot out the door that is long overdue and would be a strong move to show what kind of players he wants on his team.And why not give some love to the little guys. While those of us at smaller newspapers may not be the ones people look to for the best opinions on your coaching prowess, it couldn’t hurt to sit down and have a chat with us, if you get a chance.You know we would invite it after having some head coaches throw questions back in our faces or answer our questions with long, vague stories from their childhood. Though feel free to share those in passing as well.last_img read more

Minnesota transfer joins men’s basketball team

first_imgUSC men’s basketball received yet another transfer last week — Minnesota’s Charles Buggs. Buggs, a recent graduate of the University of Minnesota, started 21 games for the Golden Gophers last season and averaged 5.9 points and 2.9 rebounds per game. He was second on the team in field goal percentage (.462), third in free throw shooting (.769) and 3-point shooting (.319).Buggs, who has one more year of eligibility, will be eligible to play for the Trojans immediately because he graduated from Minnesota last month and has chosen to pursue a graduate degree at USC.He will be an important asset off the bench for Coach Andy Enfield, who has lost three big men this offseason. The first to go was forward Malik Martin, who averaged 1.8 points in 6.6 minutes per game. Next, forward Darion Clark who managed 4.6 rebounds per game despite only averaging 11 minutes per contest through an injury-laden season. And, most notably, starting center Nikola Jovanovic who averaged 12.1 points per game as well as 7.0 rebounds.Buggs cannot fill this entire void, but his 6’9”, 230 lb. frame is sorely needed in USC’s front court which has all of a sudden become very undersized. Buggs will be the biggest man off the bench, and while he cannot rebound like Clark or shoot like Jovanovic, he will be a solid rotational player when either Bennie Boatwright or Chimezie Metu have to leave the floor.Buggs will likely be the third forward on Enfield’s depth chart, behind the aforementioned sophomores and ahead of two incoming three-star recruits.First is Nick Rakocevic, listed at 6’10” 210 lb. from St. Joseph High in Illinois and then Harrison Henderson, a 6’9”, 200 lb. from South Grand Prairie High in Texas.Aside from Buggs, the Trojans front court is young and wild. Last year, Boatwright and Metu combined to average 2.3 turnovers per 40 minutes — an unsatisfactory mark for guys who mostly play off the ball. Additionally, Boatwright struggled shooting from inside the arc, making only 44 percent of two-point attempts.Buggs — a graduate student with four years of college basketball experience and 28 career starts — might just make his biggest impact next year as a mentor to USC’s young forwards. He knows what he would do differently as an underclassman and can help the younger student-athletes mature both on and off the court.Buggs was the second player last week to transfer to USC, making his decision four days after Duke transfer Derryck Thornton. Thornton, a point guard, will have to sit out next season, but even he will have valuable wisdom to share with USC’s young squad after learning under Coach Krzyzewski and starting through a Sweet Sixteen run.Because of Thornton’s splash, Buggs’ move went under the radar. But his importance on the Trojans will not. In his final year of eligibility, Buggs will want to leave his mark at USC.He will play quality minutes as the first or second power forward off the bench. Moreover, his maturity will help USC’s young stars stay composed both on and off the court. He certainly fills a sizeable portion of the void left by USC’s spring exodus of big men.last_img read more

Noah Affolder, Aidan Tooker advance to NCAA steeplechase final

first_img Published on June 6, 2018 at 11:02 pm Contact Danny: dremerma@syr.edu | @DannyEmerman The first night of the NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships was the last night of the season for SU’s Matt Moore, who failed to advance to the 110-meter hurdles final, and Colin Bennie, who claimed ninth place in the 10K final. But Wednesday was not the end for steeples Aidan Tooker and Noah Affolder, who qualified for the final.The strategy for the SU steeples was clear: hang back until the last few laps, then burst into the top five places to qualify for the final. The plan worked for sophomore Tooker and freshman Affolder, who will both represent Syracuse in the men’s 3000-meter steeplechase final on Friday.In the steeplechase semifinal, both Tooker (8:40.24) and Affolder (8:40.36) qualified for the final by finishing in the top five in their heats. Tooker recorded the fifth-fastest time and Affolder, who won his heat, finished seventh overall.In the first heat, Tooker paced himself in the back of the pack for the majority of the race until surging in the final lap. He barely finished in the top five, leaning past the finish line 0.01 seconds before Houston’s Brian Barraza.Like Tooker, Affolder hung back before making his move with two laps to go. Affolder briefly overtook everyone to start the final lap, jockeying for position with Stanford’s Steven Fahy. Fahy stumbled through the last water trap and Affolder muscled past him to win the heat with a personal-best time.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textFor most of the 10K race, Bennie lurked around tenth place, within striking distance. He could not create separation when the leaders picked up the pace for the final lap, and settled into ninth place, capping a four-year career for the Orange.In the 110-meter hurdles, Moore crossed fifth in the third heat, wrapping up a stellar season in which he earned an honorable mention to the All-American team. Although he cleared every hurdle cleanly, he did not have the pace to keep up with the top runners from Illinois, LSU and Florida State.The action resumes tomorrow at 7:32 p.m. ET when Paige Stoner looks to continue her dominance in the women’s 3000m steeplechase semifinal.
